||Building Energy Simulation: A Workbook Using DesignBuilder™ 1st Edition
Author: Vishal Garg, Jyotirmay Mathur, Surekha Tetali, Aviruch Bhatia
Description: This book describes various components and systems of a building and their effect on energy consumption, with the help of an energy simulation tool. The book explains simulation input parameters, along with how to do analysis of the simulation output. With minimal use of mathematical equations, the basics of building physics and energy simulation are explained using words, illustrative examples, charts, tables, and figures.
